[texts]Computer science education research at the crossroads: A methodological review of computer science education research: 2000-2005 - Justus J. Randolph
This is a dissertation about computer science education research. The abstract follows: Methodological reviews have been used successfully to identify research trends and improve research practice in a variety of academic fields. Although there have been three methodological reviews of the emerging field of computer science education research, they lacked reliability or generalizability. Therefore, because of the capacity for a methodological review to improve practice in computer science educat...

Several science education researchers are embracing postmodern relativist notions of both evaluation methodology and of the structure of all scientific knowledge. They blame bad educational evaluation and research on several causes, the worst being the following of the fundamental tenets of mainstream science. These researchers feel science educators trying to act like scientists have caused their own demise...

why do we know more today than we did yesterday? One reason is that scientists engage in research. The excitement of discovering new knowledge through research is illustrated by studying the bond strength of gaseous titanium monosulfide. Gaseous TiS molecules as well as gaseous titanium and sulfur atoms are produced by the vaporization of the high melting crystalline titanium monosulfide at temperatures near 2000°K...

The role of molecular structure in determining biological activity is shown. The correlation of the structure of sulfanilamide with that of a vitamin essential for bacterial growth leads to a more general investigation of the biochemical nature of growth. Paper chromatography is used to separate some of the material found in chromosomes. It is proposed that compounds similar to those found in chromosomes may stop cell division and thus be useful in controlling cancer...

Abstract: Here we describe an ultra-low-cost origami-based approach for large-scale manufacturing of microscopes, specifically demonstrating brightfield, darkfield, and fluorescence microscopes. Merging principles of optical design with origami enables high-volume fabrication of microscopes from 2D media. Flexure mechanisms created via folding enable a flat compact design. Structural loops in folded paper provide kinematic constraints as a means for passive self-alignment...
